On Saturday, June 15, members of Comau’s North American leadership team, led by CEO & President Brendan Blennerhassett, spent time giving back to the community through volunteer work at Gleaners Foodbank and through providing a Comau MATE exoskeleton for the organization to test.   

As part of their commitment to United Way for Southeastern Michigan and its affiliated organizations, the Comau team members and their families spent the afternoon at Gleaner’s Detroit distribution center, picking, loading and sealing pallets of food to prepare them for distribution to the local community.

In order to make a longer term impact with Gleaners, Comau also provided one of its innovative wearable MATE exoskeletons to assist with loading and packaging operations. MATE improves operator work quality in an efficient and highly ergonomic manner by providing consistent and advanced movement assistance during prolonged overhead tasks. The first in Comau’s line of wearable technologies, MATE offers users: reduced muscular and cardiac fatigue, improved posture and thus reduced risk of occupational diseases, improved precision of repetitive tasks, and improved job quality.
